I think this question has a typo because none of the multiple choice answers fit.
The question is which of the following values is in the solution set of inequality 87x<6?
A) 3 B)2 C)2 D)6
A if you plug in 3 you get
29<6 no
B) 8+14<6 no
c) 814<6 so 6<6 no
D) 8+42<6 no
Did I do something wrong or are there no correct answers?
Thank you

Ms. Sue,
87x<6
7x < 6 8
7x < 14
x = 2 
math 
Ms. Sue,
x can be any number smaller than 2.

Es,
so is there one of the multiple choice questions that are correct, since three numbers in the multiple choice that are less than 2. As you see above
Thank you 
math 
Ms. Sue,
Ahh  but the other solutions are negative number. The answer for c, 2, is the only solution that is positive.

math 
Es,
I went on the website you showed me. It said when you mult. or divide a neg, like 7x you change the sign, so shouldn't it be that x>2.
I am really confused 
math 
Es,
when you check your answer and put 2 in to do a check it comes out
87x<6
87(2)
814<6
6<6
this is not true unless it was greater than or equal to, that is why I believe there is no correct answer to the question. Isn't that right?
